Concepts of Indian Diaspora and Transnationalism

What does it mean to be multinational? Who in the 21st Century is on the brink of melting into the pot, and who is clamoring to ensure that their culture is left unmarred? Now more than ever, multiculturalism in an era of "clashing civilizations" may be the answer to preservation. On the other hand, it may mean the permanent isolation of transnational groups. What are your thoughts and findings on the cultural dislocation of first and subsequent generations of continental Indians in the Americas, Europe, Africa or Australia?
